Where in the world...?

Woah. It's been over two months since I've posted a blog post, and boy do I suck haha. I sincerely apologize to anyone (if anyone) who has been anxiously awaiting my next story of ridiculousness. My life has gotten a little bit busier than it used to be, hence the lull in posting.

But now, I'm determined to get back on track and into a routine of posting regularly again, even if it's just a short review or story that I think you all will enjoy!

For now, I'll start with an update and some things to come!

So I bet you're wondering exactly what I've been up to. Well there are a few answers to that!

First off, I told you before that I had just started a new, full-time job in news! Well, I'm about three months or so in now and it's been pretty awesome. But it's also very time consuming, stressful and straight up exhausting.

When I got into news, I was definitely not prepared for the horror I'd be dealing with on a regular basis. I can't tell you how many murders, fires and kidnappings I write up in a week. Or a day even. It's insane. Thankfully, I have a pretty strong backbone and I can handle it. But, that doesn't mean that emotional trauma doesn't manifest itself in other ways than having panic attacks every day.

I sleep, like, a LOT. I stay up late after work until like 3 or 4 a.m. (Mind you, I work nights so I don't get off until 12 usually.) And then I sleep in until 11, or 12, or sometimes 1. Then I'm back at work at 2:30 p.m.

So I spend most of my time sleeping and sometimes eating. The rest of my time is spent with my boyfriend!

Which leads me to the next part of my story/excuse of why I haven't been around.

With my new job I also met the love of my life. It was crazy how it happened. We just kind of hit it off and the rest was history. We went out the first time on what may have actually been an accidental date, and then talked to each other for hours each day after that.

Actually, to spin off of that for a minute, one of the reasons we got so close so fast is that he really helped me get through one of the hardest times in my life. Only two short years after my maternal grandmother passed away, my abuela passed away suddenly from a heart attack. My family and I were totally stunned and it was just an awful thing to experience. But, I don't really want to talk about that too much, since I want this to be a happy post. I know she would want me to enjoy my life and be happy, and that's exactly what I've done.

Anywho, I've been spending almost all of my free time with Schuyler and it's been awesome. We've only just been dating for three months, but it feels more like three years! We've already had some amazing times together and are planning for many more!

But yeah, that explains where I've been, so let's talk about where I'm going! I've still been pretty active on Instagram, but I'm fully aware I need to do more. But I'm planning some cool things for the blog coming soon!

I've got a few book reviews I'm working on, some more "Let's Talk About This" posts and some fun travel things I think will be really cool!

So bare with me and stick around for more coming this month!

XO, Briana
